Easily mistaken for a boring run-of-the-mill laptop, the ASUS VivoBook is an affordable option with a range of extra features. For a start, it has a touchscreen, is only 2cm thick, has a large array of ports and a sleek, wedge-shaped chassis. Our test...

The ASUS S400CA is a very good performer in all regular computing tasks, thanks to its Core i7 CPU with sufficient RAM and hybrid drive system. However, its display quality is nothing to write home about with poor viewing angles. Nevertheless, it is as...

The ASUS VivoBook S400C offers plenty of value for money, especially if you can find it for just over $800. It has a strong CPU, good storage, a decent touchscreen and keyboard and a good range of built-in ports. Battery life is also relatively long....

If you're looking for a new Ultrabook with a touch screen, you could do worse than the ASUS VivoBook S400CA. It's relatively light and compact, and while we would have preferred a resolution higher than 1366x768, ASUS isn't pricing this as a high-end...

The display isn't perfect, but a touchscreen, powerful specs and superior build quality easily make this the best-value Ultrabook we’ve seen...

When Microsoft first mooted Windows 8 , the common thought was that while people would use Windows 8 tablets, there wouldn't be a demand for Windows 8 touchscreen laptops. Or that they'd be too expensive. It turns out that the research from both...

The Asus VivoBook S400CA isn't flashy, but it's a surprisingly capable laptop that just happens to be the lowest-priced touch-screen notebook we've tested yet. Travelers will be disappointed by its brief battery life, however....

The Asus VivoBook S400CA-UH51 is one of the least expensive ways to get a fully functional Windows 8 ultrabook. It's a touch-screen ultrabook that gets the pricing and feature set...

The ASUS S400CA Touch Ultrabook seems like quite a good deal on the surface: $699 buys a touch screen, Windows 8, an attractive design and good battery life. We found it also bought a solid selection of ports, reasonable build quality and relatively good...

You get a decent 14-inch laptop package in the Asus VivoBook, especially given that it has a touch screen, but it doesn't add up to anything particularly impressive that you can't get elsewhere either with better design or for a lower...

The ASUS VivoBook S400CA is a Windows 8 Ultrabook that offers a touch screen and a slim and light design for an affordable price, but the battery life could be...

This model is very much about the Windows 8 experience. It looks good, the touchscreen works superbly, and the laptop is itself light and nimble. As an overall system, the Asus is a model you'll want to come back to....

The first impression is positive: The case looks elegant and is able to score points with its metallic surfaces. The manufacturing quality is also good at this price, and only a few areas leave some room for improvement in terms of the stability. On...

Bij ASUS pakken ze het grondig aan. In plaats van met één laptopje kwamen ze in het testlab van Hardware.Info met een hele stapel. Eerder belichtten we al drie modellen uit de R-serie . Dit keer is het de beurt aan de S-Serie. Daarvan bespreken we de...

Хотим мы того или нет, но сенсорный ввод распространяется и среди традиционных ПК – ноутбуков и ультрабуков. На примере новинки ASUS попробуем проверить, насколько это удачная затея.Ультрабук поставляется в комплекте с сетевым зарядным устройством...

International Review By Klikk on 83

Asus S400C er en rimelig, stillegående og dugelig maskin med berøringsfølsom skjerm i HD-oppløsning, men den lider av at skjermen er blank og ikke spesielt lyssterk. Det gjør refleksjoner til et problem, men bortsett fra det gir den et meget godt og...
